Yet another study has linked concussions to long-term brain damage. Researchers from St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto used advanced Magnetic resonance Imaging to study 43 university athletes, 21 of them with a history of concussion. The brains of athletes with prior concussions had smaller frontal lobes and less blood flow to some areas of the brain. Lead author Nathan Churchill says it's clear concussions are not a short-term injury. (Churchill says this is the first time researchers have looked at changes in brain volume, blood flow, and white matter all within a single group of athletes.)
